    FNG

    Hey to all you vintage Chevy vanners. I have wanted a flat nose van since I was a kid. Well now I own a 66 90 van. First order of business is front end overhaul and M1D brake kit. Thanks Mark and Michel! Waiting on my new springs from Alcan before I can get that accomplished. Im staying with an in-line and I want to put a T5 behind it. I will be working on making a 5 on the tree with the stock column and some fabrication. Does anyone have an extra column I can use to get started on this project. Fabbing this up on a bench will be much easier than in the van. Send me a PM. Thanks for the wealth of info!

    welcome! very nice van, I see it has the requisite rocker crease on the passenger side. Happens the first time a new driver makes a right turn. My 65 had one when I bought it in 1970.

    Thanks, I'm looking forward to this adventure.

    The PO installed them. The crank out louvered windows are cool, but I'll be removing them for flat glass in the future.
